Couple of pictures from the last weeks. Myrtille looks so grown up now, went from the cutest puppy to a handsome adolescent. We do love her and she fits perfectly into our little gang!
Happy about sunshine and a patch of grass... Life of an old dog is good, too!

Thanks for coming over!

La rose du petit prince

I knew I had to have this one when I read the name. I love the little book written by
Antoine de Saint Exupery!
The rose is a very special coulour, think pale lilac with shades of pale pink,
different to our usual colour scheme, so we made her her own rose bed.Together with a white one and lots of lavender she sits close to the patio and sends over her gorgeous scent.
Thanks for coming over!

New additons

Last saturday we were at the garden center. One of those that are called "tree school" over here, they raise the plants on their own, have a great variety and really good prices. Felt the need to get some more perenniels as the perenniel bed has quite some bare spots. Found nice plants and I can't wait to see how they fit in next year! We also got a buddleija for the terrace to replace the potted willow that just didn't make it. And we got another two - you guess - roses. Special ones as I think all of ours are. A green one. Have only seen pics of her so far, can't wait of her to open up. And a "wild" one. I love those out in the fields and finally have one of my own.
I would never have thought before gardening that I would love roses just so much. And yes, in German roses are "shes" and I think that is just appropriate!
Thanks for coming over!Tina
